For Old Goa (Basilica of Bom Jesus):
Nearest station is Karmali. By walk, 3km from Karmali Railway Station (30-45 min). By auto-rickshaw, nearly 30 INR from Karmali Railway Station to Old Goa. Panjim (Panaji), the state-capital of Goa, is barley 9 kms from here. So it is easy to take a bus from Panjim to Old Goa (nearly 10 INR). Taxis tend to overcharge in Goa. Don't opt of taxi if you are alone or in couple (you will have to shell out excess money).
It contains the mortal remains of Goa's patron
saint, St. Francis Xavier, who died while on a sea voyage to China. Once every 10 years, the body is allowed to be viewed by the throng of people who visit this holy place. I remember seeing the body when i used to live in goa in way back 2005.
Just a request to all of you who next time in 2025 goes to see the mortal remains , please don't use flash cameras to take pictures. It damages the remains of the saints.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
